May I show you the gates of goodness?

May I show you the gates of goodness?

Their sides forsake their beds, to invoke their Lord in fear and hope, and they spend (in charity in Allah's Cause) out of what We have bestowed on them. [Soorah as-Sajdah 32:16] 

Narrated Mu'adh bin Jabal [radhi-yAllahu anhu]: The Prophet (Allah's Messenger) said to him: "May I show you the gates of goodness? (They are)
(1) Fasting is a screen from Hell. 
(2) As-Sadaqah (deeds of charity in Allah's Cause) extinguishes (removes) the sins, as the water extinguishes the fire. 
(3) Standing in Salat (performing of prayers) by a person during the middle (or the last third)
 part of a night." 
Then Prophet [sal-Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam] recited: "Their sides forsake their beds." (V.32:16) (Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi) (Tafsir Al-Qurtubi)
Ref.: The Noble Qur.aan Soorah as-Sajdah 32:16

Avoid thinking of the few things you don't get from Allaah after praying.
Instead, think of all those countless beautiful things that Allaah gave you without even asking.
